Remember when I pleaded in my last post~
"Oh table of my dreams, where are you?"
Well, I FOUND THE FARMHOUSE TABLE OF MY DREAMS!!
Let me back up a bit and come clean with you. I have been obsessing on finding an old farmhouse table and spending way too much time on Craig's List... and finding myself willing to pay way more than I normally would.
We even drove way out to Queen Creek only to discover the table listed was NOT what they had lead us to believe. Quite frankly, it was a cheap hunk of junk.
You see I only wanted a table with no chairs because if you remember, I was going for this look ~
and this ~
So here's the amazing part ~ the story.
I rarely ever go to Goodwill unless it's half-off Saturday. But for whatever reason I pull in and do a quick walk-through. I DO NOT see it the first time through. I wander through a 2nd time and THERE IT IS. And this is where I'm going to get all weird on you... as I was leaving the table to go find an employee and see about maybe buying it, this very elderly gentleman using a walker starts talking to me. He tells me a story about his grand-dad having a big ole table like that and eventually needing to saw it in half to make it fit in the house. He told me that I should take that table home. You guys, I took that as a sign from God. I know that sounds weird, but I needed an affirmation that THIS was THE farmhouse table that I had been waiting for.
I felt so sure at that moment that I thanked him and told him that because of him I was going to buy it. And so I did. Then the employee told me she would also apply the 20% off online coupon... that I knew nothing about. Another sign.
And look, it has a drawer. A darling little drawer!
But HEY, did you notice anything else about the table photos? (other than Koda & Wiley) HELLO, the drywall installation and texturing are DONE!!! The attic is enclosed! Houston, we have lift-off! (don't know why I just said that)
Anyway, the room feels so huge now with the higher ceilings. We are beyond pleased.
